Dynasties of Ancient Egypt
The tenth dynasty of ancient Egypt (notated Dynasty X) is often combined with Dynasties VII, VIII, IX and XI (Thebes only) under the group title First Intermediate Period. Dynasties IX and X date approximately from 2160 to 2025 BC.
Dynasty X Name Comments Akhtoy Meryibtowe - Akhtoy Wahkare - Akhtoy Nebkaure - Merykare -
Dynasty IX was founded at Herakleopolis Magna, and Dynasty X continued there. At this time Egypt was not unified, and there is some overlap between these and other local dynasties. The Turin Canon lists eighteen kings for this royal line, but their names are damaged, unidentifiable, or lost.
